The Harris family took over this 56 acre dairy farm in 1986 and we farmed it until 1999 there was a decline in the dairy industry. We had already established the seasonal site and touring the site on the riverbank. Mendip Lake was dug in 2000 when we built the static site. Quantock Lake was dug in 2004 and we subsequently landscaped 6 lodge pitches around it. In 2010 the old workshop and hay barn were replaced with 4 self-catering cottages. We further extended the seasonal site to 29 pitches to keep up with demand and made improvements to the shower/toilet block with underfloor heating making use of our biomass boiler.
The park is in a peaceful location with beautiful landscaped grounds with far reaching views across the Somerset Levels to the Mendip hills, Glastonbury Tor and the Quantock hills. These views can be seen from our walkway which is perfect for exercising your furry friends.
In addition fishing available on the Rivers Brue & Cripps, we have two fishing lakes which are well stocked with Carp, Roach, Tench and Rudd. It is home to an abundance of wildlife including owls, Kingfishers, buzzards, otters and wild deer.
It is an excellent location for fishing, canoeing, walking and cycling and within easy reach of many attractions and beaches. We are local to many attractions and a short drive from Burnham on Sea. A warm welcome awaits you at Cripps we very much hope you enjoy your stay with us.

We have been coming to Cripps farm for a number of years and it’s always been really clean and well kept. The owners are really nice people and we have always enjoyed our stay.Peter Brind
Absolutely first class! Although only 20 miles from home (North Curry) it’s like being in a different county, we stayed in our touring caravan on a hard standing pitch with electric, water & drainage next to the river, Toilets & showers are immaculately clean & site is spotless, 2 lakes for fishing plus the river so all you need for a fabulous relaxing break.Jane Burkitt
Spent Christmas in Barn Owl Cottage with my wife, Mother in Law and 2 dogs. Were welcomed by a Christmas Tree with gifts which was a lovely thought. Absolutely love it here, the people who run the complex are so so friendly. This was our second visit in 2017 and one is already booked for 2018 with another visit in our thoughts to be arranged later. Can’t recommend it enough.Kevin Corns
Thank you so much for a lovely stay 🙂 We (2 adults, 1 toddler & 1 dog) stayed in Kingfisher Cottage for 3 nights. Everything was great and everybody there was very welcoming and helpful. Our little girl really loved seeing the pig; it was her first time seeing one and she was so excited. We’ll definitely come back again.Kay Bishop
